Well I am happy (I think) to know I am not the only one out there.  I had spinal fusion L4-L5, L5-S1  on 1/29/09 and then went back to the OR on 2/4/09 for repair of ruptured dura and I&D of spinal abscess-- I did go home on IV antibiotics (I have been off of them now for 6 weeks) but I contine to run a daily low grade temp of 100.0 - 100.8.  All of my blood work and a recent MRI with contrast show that I ddo not have an infection, yet I am exhauseted all of the time and remain in a significant amout of pain.  Has anyone given you any info that may be useful?
